The best way to determine if your pain
spawns from problems with the discs between the vertebrae is through an MRI scan
. These types of scans generate images of your spinal cord, vertebrae, and discs in 3D, and hence, problems are more easily seen this way than via X-ray. When you jumped from 12 feet you could have inflicted damage to your spine which could be at the root of your problems. However, you will need to get the proper tests to determine what is really causing your pain.
